Boise Neighborhood Interactive

Energize Our Neighborhoods is proud to host the 3rd Boise Neighborhood Interactive community conference, highlighting the event’s theme: “Reimagine Housing & Neighborhoods."

Attainable housing is incredibly important for individual and community health and well-being. But this vital resource continues to become more expensive and less accessible in many places, Boise included. While we face many structural barriers to improving the affordability, availability, and accessibility of homes, we have the opportunity to reimagine how neighborhoods can be part of meaningfully addressing our housing needs.

The mission of the Boise Neighborhood Interactive is to empower and engage residents to take responsibility for creating and sustaining welcoming and livable neighborhoods through information, shared resources, collaboration, and training.
